They just changed out battery on the third time said it was a cell in battery was bad. Let skip to March 2021 my car sat for two days battery dead. Now it’s says battery charging all the time now. I don’t trust the car now.

I just noticed the “battery charging” message on my 2020 rav4 yesterday. Taking it to dealer Monday for next service and to figure out what is wrong. I noticed my car will perform the auto off function normally if I do not have my cell plugged in to charge/play music, but gives battery charging message when it’s plugged in. Do you have any advice on what I should ask/demand at the dealer? I believe my car is still under warranty as I just purchased it last May

I have the same issue 2020 rav4. Stop & Start not working and notices `Battery Charging`. It was not run for one day due to winter storm and next day it did not run, battery drained!. I took it to the dealer and they said no problem, they just checked but not did anything. Now It is still noticing `Battery Charging` and it will not be run if I do not drive it one day or shorter.
